I am a psychologist and psychotherapist committed to offer therapy in a safe, confidential and a non-judgmental environment. I work with a relationship based approach, committed to show warmth, acceptance and empathy and a focus on you and your story.
Do you find yourself feeling stuck? Repeating patterns that are not particularly helpful but you are unsure how to change them.
Therapy can be a challenging but satisfying journey that can help you to understand yourself better, to grow, to learn, to be more responsive to your environments, to learn how to interrelate and to improve your mental and emotional wellbeing.
My work involves to help you explore difficulties that may be causing you distress and to make changes in life that you feel would be beneficial. It can also provide an opportunity to become more aware of yourself and your 'place' in the wider world.You may wish to explore a specific issue or you may have a more general feeling of discontent or distress. You may be experiencing depression, anxiety, or having difficulties at work place or with personal relationships.
Whatever your issue, I commit to offer a safe, confidential and a non-judgmental space where we can explore the challenges and the opportunities in your life.
What to expect in your first meeting.
At times it might feel very daunting contacting a psychotherapist; however I seek to offer a warm, engaging and empathetic environment and a trusting therapeutic relationship. Being heard and understood is at times a powerful feeling.
In our first meeting I seek to gain a greater understanding of your presenting difficulties and to explore with you a therapeutic contract that would enable us to facilitate your journey towards a greater degree of self awareness and happiness.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a BSc in Psychology and an MSc in Integrative Therapeutic Counselling. I am a registered member of BACP and BPS. In addition I hold a PG Diploma in Psychodynamic Supervision by the WPF accredited by BPS. I adhere to the strictly code of Ethics both from BACP and BPS.
In addition to my private practice, I also work in the NHS, employed by Imperial Trust in Staff Counselling and Stress Management Service. In the past I have worked in the Counselling and Mental Health Team at a London University and I have managed and delivered group work for couples who transition to parenthood, aiming to improve couple communication, develop effective ways of parenting their children and improve satisfaction in their relationship.
Integrative Psychotherapy is a combined approach to psychotherapy that brings together different elements of specific therapies such as Psychodynamic, Person Centred, and Cognitive Behavioural Modalities.
Relationship Based Approach
Based on the idea that strong and fulfilling relationships with other individuals can help people maintain emotional well-being, this model may be beneficial to people seeking therapy for any number of reasons, but in particular to address long-term emotional distress, especially when distress occurs as a result of relational concerns.
As a therapist, I strongly believe that the therapeutic relationship between therapist and client is immensely important, thus I hope to facilitate a safe environment where you feel accepted, listened to and able to find your own voice.
In order to keep my practice rigorous and up-to-date I attend regular supervision. There I can reflect on my work and explore the best ways to serve my clients.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
